Raiders-Cougars Game Undergoes a 'Pink Out' for Breast Cancer Awareness

Alpharetta and Chattahoochee players, coaches and fans join together to make it a pink night.

Hardly a seat remained at Alpharetta High's football stadium Friday night, Oct. 19, as the home team Raiders took on the Chattahoochee Cougars in a key gridiron matchup. But rather than team colors, the fans were decked out in pink.

Alpharetta High School was hosting the Second Annual Pink Out Football game benefitting Susan G. Komen and Northside Breast Care Center. It was “Two Teams, One Cause” as the Raiders and the Cougars joined together to raise funds for a cure.

The night stared with a celebration, bringing cancer survivors onto the field to celebrate life and remember those who had passed. Marching bands from both schools intermingled to perform together. And one mother's life was remembered via video on the field's large video screen as her family watched from midfield. Michelle Michaels was the subject of the video, with her daughters and parents among those on the field.

The sale of T-shirts at both schools raised funds and created the color for the night.
